the obama white house i give her even more credit. no one in this administration knows anything. hello and welcome to "justice." i'm he judge jeanine pirro. thanks for being with us tonight. now, the president didn't know that the inspector general was investigating his irs for targeting political enemies. the president didn't know anything about his justice department seizure of associated press phone records. the attorney general didn't know anything about his department's subpoena of ap records. but then again, holder is the one who didn't know anything about fast and furious either. and, of course, hillary didn't know anything about the request for help in benghazi. and joe biden, well, he just doesn't know anything about anything. so who is running this joint? i'm convinced my mom could do a better job. this week on full display the white house reeling after revealations that the irs targeted political enemies and the justice department engaged in the wholesale seizing of press phone records. so what to do? >> we are out there trying to hunt down the folks who carried this out and

questions about what's going on in the obama white house, how much they knew. the administration is saying they knew nothing about this irs scandal at all, correct? >> that's right. they said that jay carney, the white house spokesman, said the counsel's office found out a few weeks ago that the inspector general was doing this investigation at all but you're absolutely right. what this does is feed into an already existing huge problem with the american people, that is that they simply don't trust the government. that's obviously the basis for this country. but it has really gotten so much worse recently and the fact that you have these two issues, you have the government effectively spying on and taking records from journalists, and then of course, the irs which has never had the greatest reputation in the world. it's definitely a double whammy. >> and already this administration is actually going after more classified leaks than basically all recent administrations combined. >> that's right. i don't fault them so much on that, and i must say in their defense, none of these scanda

washington scandal since water game the reputation of the obama white house has gone from sketchy to sinister. they don't look jerky now, they look dirty. the patina of high-mindedness the president enjoyed is gone. i have to say, peggy, what you don't talk about here is an administration for a man that you work for who led the iran-contra scandal with iran, the secret war and lied to congress and all the rest. overstatement here? >> i don't think so. i think this is -- what is going on now is all three of these scandals makes a cluster that implies some very bad things about the forthcomingness of the administration and about its ability to at certain dramatic points do the right thing. and i got to tell you, everyone can argue about which of these things is most upsetting, but this irs thing is something i've never seen in my lifetime. it is the revenue gathering arm of the u.s. government -- >> peggy, wait a second. >> -- going after political -- >> richard nixon specifically directed people to investigate and audit people. of course we've seen if t in our lifetime. >> but this is
